our shot there, steve, conservative radio show host. you have the visual disadvantage because you're skype. i'll let you start off first here. let me play what paul ryan, completely opposite of what chris christie said this sunday. his assessment of the debates. let's play ryan, please. >> i don't think one event is going to make or break this campaign. look, president obama's a very -- he's a very gifted speaker. this is mitt's first time on this kind of a stage. >> it's no secret, steve, you are conservative republican. you are not a fan of mitt romney. is this a make or break moment for his campaign on wednesday? who's right? chris christie or congressman ryan? >> well, if my head is twice as big as everybody on the panel does that mean i'm twice as smart in that's the question. >> you have to take that up with them. >> i think that they're both right in a way. i don't think one singular event will testimony the outcome unless either barack obama or mitt romney says there's no soviet domination of eastern europe. i do think one singular event can be a catalyst for an eventual o
msnbc mike barnicle. howard dean, and former treasury official and "morning joe" economic analyst steve rattner, stranger. >> long time, no see. >> you're always here. >> you're never here. >> we're globe trotting, what can i say? hi, willie. >> what was your initial reaction to the elizabeth warren/scott brown debate. >> scott brown fell into the trap that sometimes male politicians fall into when they debate women. he looked overbearing and angry. and you particularly can't do that when you're debating a woman candidate. i thought he was in a lot of trouble as a result of this. he's behind anyway, but now he looks mad, angry, and i think that's a -- >> okay. well, that race is fascinating. the debate was last night and we have fascinating clips of that. and also the look at preparations of the presidential debates a day away. but first, we'll start with afghanistan. nato's secretary general says there's a possibility that western forces could be withdrawn from afghanistan more quickly than previously planned. he suggested the deadly spike of insider attacks has hit the morale of forme

a two-point bump. either way it's news. >> let's get right to our panel now. we're joined by steve kornacki, co-host of "the cycle," jimy williams back in new york. steve, mr. hannity and, what's his name, mr. carlson, is that his name, they talk about whipping up fear, paranoia and hatred. that's them, not the video, isn't it? >> i mean, it is amazing to me that the right is still, five years after barack obama became a presidential candidate -- >> five years after i saw that very video. >> the moment, if there was a moment the whole jeremiah wright association and all this racial stuff that's there, if there was a moment that that was going to hurt and sink barack obama politically, it was april of 2008. there was a serious crisis in barack obama's campaign. he delivered a speech on race, a speech to be remembered for years to come and that put the issue to rest for 70%, 80% of the public. but there's this sliver of the public on the right still living in april of 200. it's a real problem for the republican party. when you're a month away from the election and your candidate is l
, and steve schmidt. lawrence o'donnell will be our man in the spin room tonight. and the one and only chris matthews is at the university of denver, which is the site of tonight's debate. chris, i've been watching you this past hour. i can sense the excitement that you feel, that i feel as well. i mean, it is a big night when these candidates speak at their conventions, but tonight the tv audience for this debate could be almost twice the size as the convention audience. just a huge night. what are each of these guys thinking they need to do tonight? >> well, i think obama's the one i'm focused on, the president. because everybody's been talking about, it's romney's big chance, it's romney's opportunity, blah, blah, blah. suppose obama goes on the attack tonight. suppose he surprises everybody and doesn't play defense. he doesn't try to handle his opponent and clinch, that he really goes and tries to put him away. and i think that's the significanti i significanting question. how does romney deal with the fact that he has no spontaneity? no ability to deal with the unexpected? how does he d
college votes. joining me now is steve and karen. karen, the expectation game has gotten really out of hand this time. finally chris christie, for whatever reason, just kind of gave up and stated the obvious and said well, of course. you know, mitt romney has to be the big winner on this first debate. >> well, i think he was like look, let me keep my credibility in check because he's been watching what has happened to congressman ryan over the course of this campaign. but i think each man has a different thing they need to accomplish. i think for governor romney he needs to have a strong performan performance. it's not just about one performance for him. his problem is a lack of consistency. he's got to have a good wednesday, thursday, friday, saturday. every day to the election. if you see him give one good performance and the next day they're off message, it's more of what we've seen the bumbling along throughout the campaign. and i think for president obama the challenge is, as my former boss howard dean said, don't get irritable. it's going to be hard when governor romney is goi
, where does he run after last night's sweeping win? let's talk. here now is democratic strategist steve mcmahon. and then cnbc contributor geoff jennifer rubin, author of the "washington post" right turn blog. jennifer was it a game changer for the whole presidential race? >> it potentially can be. what has to happen now romney has to build on that day after day. the difficulty they've had, this was true in the primary as well, they have a few good days and then they get off message or they fumble the ball a little bit. if they can string together one good day after another they only have to do it 33 more times they can get it done. >> growth, jennifer. growth, tax reform, lower the base, broaden the base, jobs. he had the kudlow script last night. >> he did. what is so telling is that the president is so thrown off balance he's insisting that romney has changed his plan because he wasn't giving the obama talking points. >> well now hold on. >> the democrats have mischaracterized romney's plans up the ying yang. so when he comes forward and tells what his plans are it's a shock. they th
the light sxwro and join our team. >> joining us now is steve boykin and anne cornbluth and steve deyes. the president out at that rally seemed more enthusiastic. he said that was not the real mitt romney who showed up at the debate last night. so the question to you, was it the real president obama who showed up last night? >> great question, because the president obama at that rally is not what i saw on the debate stage last night. one lingering question in my mind and i even tweeted it in real time. did he know he was on a split screen the entire evening? because style matters, tamron, and the substance -- you know the fact finders are already having a field day on. stylistically he lost the debate. he looked dmismissive and troubled to be there. the president did not respond in kind the way he did in the rally today. >> anne a lot of people are saying all of you folks talking about style and the body language are missing the point. this was supposed to be about substance, and that goes so far because you have the president today saying who is the real mitt romney. the question is fo
a hard look at this. >> you have to say something, i guess. joining me is democrat strategist steve mchahn and republican strategist mark mckinnen. i'm going to start with you, mark, because i was impressed with mr. romney's way of presenting himself. he was like an actor who came on playing a bigger role than he normally guy like a big guy, "master and commander" russell crowe. he grew when he came on stage and he stayed in character as if he wanted to do a couple more hours of it. so prepping him -- and i didn't ven that mitt romney before. that guy has not been out there. what happened with him? how did he get so ready for that thing? >> i think he and the campaign totally understood what the stakes were and they prepared and they prepared a lot. i have watched mitt romney over the years, and he has steadily improved, and, you know, people like stewart stevens and beth myers took a lot of heat over the last couple months about the campaign, but those -- i have worked with stuart before in many campaigns and he's a debate preparation fanatic and they understood that this would be an
expertly into a trash can. >> and later, yes, ladies and gentlemen, that is steve martin, but what is the star of "stage and screen" doing in this internet video? the answer is ahead, you're watching msnbc. new prilosec otc wildberry is the same frequent heartburn treatment as prilosec otc. now with a fancy coating that gives you a burst of wildberry flavor. now why make a flavored heartburn pill? because this is america. and we don't just make things you want, we make things you didn't even know you wanted. like a spoon fork. spray cheese. and jeans made out of sweatpants. so grab yourself some new prilosec otc wildberry. [ male announcer ] one pill each morning. 24 hours. zero heartburn. satisfaction guaranteed or your money back. >>> in our what's the big idea segment, several celebrities are making perhaps the most nonpartisan request this campaign season. they are simply asking young americans to vote for stuff. led by leonardo dicaprio, an all-star cast is calling on young voters to post tweets, photos, and youtube videos on stuff that matters to them most. the point is to en
or cure deadly diseases. >>> remember this? the late crocodile hunter, steve irwin clutching his baby boy as he went face-to-face with predators? that baby is 8 years old. he fed a crock hymn for the first time at the family zoo in australia. >>> this mornings dish of scrambled politics. the debate is the most tweeted event in police cal history. it sparked more than 2 million tweets. big bird from "sesame street" caused the peak of the tweets at 17,000 per minute. when romney said he loved the character but wanted to eliminate funding for the show and all public broadcasting. celebs were lighting up the stooer. bill maher said, i can't believe i'm saying this, but obama looks like he needs a teleprompter. eva longoria said i'm in new zealand watching the debate. obama is killing it on health care. both need to speak slower. a nonpolitical bush weighed in. nfl running back reggie bush said romney was aggressive at times and won the debate but i think obama will be reelected as president. >>> jetblue is offering american who is might be upset about their candidates defeat a chance to follo
at that. >> we have steve schmidt on yesterday. steve schmidt would call me during the 2008 campaign. and it used to drive him crazy, and the mccain campaign crazy, about how arrogant the obama team was. he was, like, they don't respect us at all. he'd go, why -- you know, they don't think we have anything. and that was the attitude that they set forth. and i've just got to believe also there was a huge level of overconfidence going into that romney debate. kind of like the dukakis team had in 1988, that they were the smartest people on the planet, and they looked down on the waters and the great unwashed, and i think maybe he was in shock that mitt romney came out and was effective as he was. >> or maybe they felt and maybe rightfully so, they didn't really need the debate as much as they thought they did. >> maybe they listened to donny. >> but i want to know, mark halperin, what you meant by mitt romney, who he was during the debate versus the mitt romney that the president might have been practicing against of the past few months or past few years. what are the differences? >> he
steve schmidt this morning on "morning joe" reacting to last night's debate. how much weight do the debates actually carry? for more reaction to the debates last night, i want to bring in live from seattle, minneapolis contributor ron reagan. senator of former president, ronald reagan. and we have columnist megan mccain, daughter of former presidential candidate john mccain. megan, i want to start with you, was this debate a reprieve for mitt romney? steve says they are basically a reset moving forward in watching the numbers tighten with momentum, the wind at his back. >> let me tell you something, thomas, this morning is a good morning to be a romney supporter. yes, i definitely think that mitt romney came back swinging and completely reset the election and gained new momentum and enthusiasm and did an incredible job last night and i have never been more proud of him. >> ron, ed schultz told me liberals are emotional and disappointed that the president was not more aggressive. and others say this is equivalent of the rnc convention, a big lackluster. >> he was a bit off his ga
of legendary co-founder steve jobs, and cbs's mandy drury is here with what's moving your money. so, i remember this a year ago. the question was, how will apple do without the vision of steve jobs? and i guess if you look at the stock price, the answer is not bad. >> absolutely. the numbers really do tell the full story here, chris. you know, you have, for example, on october the 5th 2011, about a year ago, $376.63 was what it cost you for one apple stock. now about a year later, october the 4th, 2012, $668.80 approximately. that's up about 77%, chris. you know, it's thanks to several products that obviously jobs helped to invent, things like ipods, iphone, ipad and they have helped to power stack in apple up to the record high just about a week or so ago we were above $700 for one apple stock. so up nearly twofold this past year. apple has become, chris, the most valuable and most profitable company in the world. tim cook must be doing something right. >> speaking of companies that generate buzz, i was devastated to read on the front page of the "wall street journal" today, can i just read yo
was speaking more. then you could by any other individual plays. let me bring in steve schmidt who is a senior strategist. what's your overall assessment? >> i think it was a great night for mitt romney. i think the doom and gloom that's been hanging over the romney campaign, republicans in general has lifted tonight. i think that the democratic advance which began literally a month ago when clint eastwood walked out on stage ended tonight. i think the race is going to tighten. i think mitt romney was in command of this from the beginning. i'm not sure that he lost an exchange during the entire debate. a startling performance in my view and just the context of how good mitt romney was tonight. >> i thought that in terms of individual exchanges i think what may have been most notable, there wasn't i think a single direct attack against mitt romney from president obama. however, they substantively dealt with policy matters. >> he was looking down tonight. he was passive. he was abstract in his answers. mitt romney was talking about real people, giving real examples. i thought he was clear. he wa
. and now evidently steve forbes, a former presidential candidate tweeting his endorsement of jack welch. then against almost everybody else in this town, a former economist on here, jared bernstein, said jack welch ought to be ashamed of himself. a former republican white house official also endorsed the integrity of the people who put these numbers together at the bureau of labor statistics. so jack welch and a couple of other people on an island on this one. really an inflammatory attack with no evidence to back it up. >> mike viqueira at the white house, thanks so much. >>> for reaction to that i'm joined by susan page, "usa today" and david nakamura, "washington post." good day to both of you. this is fascinating. susan, first of all, how much does this employment number blunt mitt romney's debate momentum? and do you think the white house is going phew, relieved at this? >> if not popping champagne bottles. two-ways in which this number was so useful to the white house yesterday. it got the unemployment rate below 8% which has been kind of a line of demarkation. the romney folks ha
is december seventh. call now. >>> i'm steve kornacki live in denver where it is t-minute news six hours until the first presidential debate. mitt romney is already here. president obama will touch down this hour. >> i'm crystal ball. vice president joe biden doesn't debate until next week, but
the consulate grounds, including an hourly schedule for ambassador steves for the day he died. >> frankly, none of us was surprised to see them at the site. >> fox news learned security aides to president obama and intelligence officials remained divided longer than has been disclosed about how to characterize the benghazi attacking to the public. the team made a secret finding of terrorism by september 1, so it could use a 2001 antiterrorism statute to move around more freely men, and material. yet the debate continued and intensified once soup rice made the sunday show rounds to say it was the result of a spontaneous mob. >> we don't see signs this was a coordinated plan, remeditated attack. >> the next day, fox news learned officials contacted several independent security contractors to review post attack footage of the annex where two ex navy seals were killed. the contractors found that the impact angles and fragmentation patterns of the mortar damage revealed at least two mortar teams using gps devices to score direct hits on their first shots. the intelligence officials who already belie
does that do to the republican party's politics on this issue? joining us now, steve carknacky, the co-host of msnbc's the cycle and a senior writer at salon.com. thanks for being here. >> happy to be here. >> there were a ton of these gay marriage bans on the ballot in 2004 and the common wisdom was republicans thought it would drive up turnout and help george w. bush get elected by bringing out conservatives who might not like him but who really hated gay people. did that turn out to be the case in '04? >> there is all sorts of speculation about that. you can certainly match up. it was a year in which turnout went up surprisingly overall and it was sort of a base election where the base of each party was activated. i've never seen a definitive study that said yes we can clearly link the x number of voters in ohio or whatever would have stayed home if not for this being on the ballot. you can find a correlation between people who voted against it in a place like ohio and who voted for george w. bush but on a lot of other issues, too. >> sort of a mixed bag. the common wisdom doesn't m

self would take care of things. >> there's a few other theories about this. steve schmidt worked on the 2012 reelect bush. the president always has more important things to do. when you say you need to go to debate practice and he says turkey is about to go to war. i think preparation does matter. i think we saw that a little bit. >> would he have practiced for these? >> yes, yes. >> i just want to say, the one thing they should practice if their advisers didn't know this is what it's going to look like on tv. that's the screen. i was surprised. the network i watched, i don't know which it was showed a split screen the entire time. when the president is taking notes, he has no idea. if you see that in advance, shot it like that, he would not have done that. i'm sorry. >> don't apologize. i want to hear what else we should be hearing thursday. i brought your stuff. you don't have to do this. yes i do. i want you to keep this. it'd be weird. take care. you too.
